You can’t stop me.

Megan O’Ryan was a city crime scene investigator – she never expected to end up at the scene of her own sister’s murder. Having found the DNA evidence to convict the St. Patrick’s Strangler who killed her sister plus 2 other girls, she is now trying to heal in the small town of Crystal Lake.

I am so glad I picked this up. It's very captivating & had me hanging on to every word. I love how Laura is able to weave the plot & characters.
